CHILE: A letter from the Dirección de Antártica

It is with pride to be able to display different letters arrived from the Administration of the President of the Republic of Chile and the Dirección de Antártica coming together with the formal approval to lay a wreath – created from ice – in the name of Chile during our commemoration ceremony in the Antarctic.

We are grateful and we will act accordingly

Antarctic and its Protocol on Protection of the Antarctic Environment (Madrid Protocol).
